Did you know that the average person has five hundred negative thoughts every day?
There’s a narrative flowing through your mind about who you are and what you’re worth. Some of it – perhaps a lot if it – is critical.
- “Why’d you do that?”
- “You’re so stupid.”
- “Nothing ever goes right.”
- “No one could ever love me.”
Sometimes we’re our own worst enemy. We have habits, behaviors, and emotional triggers that we wish could be different. But they’ve been part of our lives for so long that change seems impossible. That’s why well-known theologian Warren Wiersbe once said, “The Christian life is not a playground; it’s a battleground.”
We want to equip you to fight that battle well on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Winning Your Inner Battles.” Joining us is pastor Levi Lusko, who says battles are usually decided by gaining control of the high ground. That’s why an army platoon takes the hill, why the Air Force guards the sky, and why America fought to win the space race.
The high ground of your life is your mind. What do you allow into it? In 2 Corinthians 10:5, Paul encourages us to “take every thought captive to obey Christ.” On the broadcast, we’ll talk about how to replace thoughts of worry, fear, and distrust with hope, faith, and trust in God’s love.
By the end of the program, you’ll learn how to fire yourself as your own worst critic and rehire yourself as a coach. Coaches don’t belittle you and walk away. They are invested in you. They call out your errors, but they also come alongside you and say, “Hey, you got this!”
Levi Lusko is the pastor of Fresh Life Church, a multi-site ministry with locations in Montana, Utah, Wyoming, and Oregon. He’s written a book called I Declare War: Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself. We’d like to send you a copy as our way of saying thank you when you make a monthly pledge of any amount. If you can’t make a monthly commitment, please get in touch anyway. We’ll still offer you the book for a one-time gift of any amount.
